Emily Alexander has now joined us in a freelance capacity to develop the shop. This will sell art and design objects made primarily by local artists and makers. Emily will be thinking through how to source stock, how to brand the shop, who to target and of course all the operational detail. Meanwhile Lucy Phillips is project managing the opening commission and we’ve just shortlisted from a brilliant set of applications AND we’ve also shortlisted for the post of General Manager – again a very high quality field. It’s all go at the Old Fire Station.
